About the book
For a comprehensive history of the Romanian Church and its influences upon Romania in the post-Communist era, look no further than this brief work by George Alexander. Within its pages are dedicated research and over 100 source notes in regards to all the remarkable reforms, charities, and revitalization of both church and Country that has occurred under the leadership of the patriarch Daniel. Patriarch Daniel is proven in this book to truly be a Christ-like role model for all. Romania has been a nation fraught with struggles thanks to the Communist dictatorship she found herself chained under for decades, but Romania has survived and is beginning to thrive, in part due to the efforts of her Church. This book shines forth like a ray of hope for Romania and Eastern Europe as a whole, demonstrating fully that through the message of the Gospel and the love Christ offered by the Orthodox Church, any nation can recover from even near-total collapse. For anyone interested in the fascinating post-Communist history of Romania and her faith, this book is a must-have work.
